I am going away for a few days so as I shall be gone and no reviews, I am doing a special list to hold down the fort; ROAD TRIPS, and when horror movies put you off them. This is such a clever idea when I am going on one tomorrow...
One of the most well known ones, is The Hitcher, when a couple decide to pick up a hitchhiker, who then chases them down to kill them. Kids, take that as a lesson, never pick up hitchhikers. I like the film, but it has for sure made me realise even more, never pick up anyone. Anyone. Even roadkill, that might chase you down and kill you. I also don't mind Sean Bean as the evil guy... Don't hate me.
I am heading up north, and one film that was based on a true life story near to where I am going, I say near, nearer, up in Scotland, is The Hills Have Eyes. And yes, it fits, it is based on a roadtrip. A family breaks down, but whoops, near a family of cannibals, hate when that happens...
Good film, but not when your mum thinks it's similar to Indiana Jones and insists on watching it...
A very underrated movie that definitely makes this list, is Hush. A couple set off on a trip, only for the girl to disappear. This is a brilliant British film, and one that is not known at all. The tension is perfect, it is fairly realistic, unlike some of these type of films, such as he does need to stop for petrol during the film, and one of the most important things, aside from the ending, the characters are likable. Yes!
Ohhhh, this next one is pretty creepy, once I actually stayed awake through it.. Dead End. A family on a trip turn down a 'shortcut', meeting a woman in white, and never come off.
I find this film very very creepy, like it still creeps me out now, mainly just the Hearse really... Thank god it was creepy though, because the ending is terrible.
I'm starting to think I might jinx myself if I keep going, so I will stop, and say see you in a few!
